KIEV, May 27, /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s former President Leonid Kuchma said he saw no point in Petr Poroshenko, who is winning the Ukrainian presidential polls held on Sunday, to the southeastern Donetsk region.
“I think it would be right to go there if they want to have a dialogue with you,” Kuchma said in an interview with the 112 Ukraine television channel on Tuesday. “Even if he [Poroshenko] leaves for the southeast today, there will be no result he and the entire world want to achieve. It would be right to try to reach understanding with the help of the world community, the European Union, the United States and Russia.”
Earlier, Poroshenko said as soon as he takes the presidential office his first trip would be to the southeastern regions of Ukraine.
